Larger than what?

Post-War Colts generally have a blue stock screw with a head about .25-inch inch diameter, and no escutcheon around the screw head side of the stocks. The screw directly contacts the stock wood in a recess.

Pre-War Colts have a much smaller screw head, about .125-inch in diameter that is nickel-plated. The screw head side of the stocks has an escutcheon. The screw contacts the escutcheon set in a recess and not the wood.

The stocks you have sound correct for a 1960s Colt.

By the way, Colts have "stocks," not "grips." If you are a Colt person, you need to use the correct terminology!
